Just after midnight on Kathleen Brown's 30-hour, 1,499-mile marathon bus, van and plane tour, the candidate had an urge to dance. "We've got to get some exercise!" the impossibly buoyant Brown chided her fellow travelers: a rumpled assembly of press and campaign staff that sat slumped Thursday in the seats of her northbound campaign bus. They still had 13 hours to go--a long, chilly night that would include a truck stop, a chicken processing plant, two bakeries and countless swigs of mouthwash.

Steven Grimshaw voted for Pete Wilson in 1990 and until this week figured he'd vote Tuesday to give the battle-scarred governor another four years on the job. But Grimshaw, 44, a West Hills Republican, now says he plans to vote for Wilson's challenger, Democrat Kathleen Brown.

Pete Wilson is mad as hell about illegal immigration. Sound familiar? California voters can hardly avoid hearing that clear, simple message. The grim-faced, doughty governor flays the federal government for failed immigration polices, he advocates a state ID card, he warns that the state is being crushed by the financial and social costs of millions of immigrants sweeping across the Mexican border.

When Zeb Rice's mother, Kathleen Brown, decided to run for governor, the 23-year-old college student wrote a memo to the campaign explaining why it needed an Internet account. Cheap propaganda outlet. Direct access. Hip, future-looking image. The student vote. It sounded good, but nobody could figure out what he was talking about.
